Khumb Masaledaar

Best Blogger Tips

A sleepy Sunday, with nothing much to do except cook some good food and look at yr sons create mayhem. The worst thing is to wake up in the wee hours of the morning, say 4 AM, to go for golf and suddenly check the messages that arrived post you hit the bed, to realize that none of your golfer buddies are going to be coming. With no sleep now, and a few hours to kill, kitchen happens to be the only retreat to hit. Precisely what I did this morning. Its a different story though that I slept for 5 hours post everyone getting up :)
